Bodies of Water, an uneasy collection of New Zealand rivers and lakes provides the subject of a new exhibition by Murray Lloyd examining the deceptive nature of picture postcard images.

Ten images of apparently pristine environments in postcard and large format, with accompanying texts draw the viewer in for closer inspection. Beneath the surface is a darker story found buried in academic and scientific papers and websites of regional councils, crown research agencies, and universities.

"Unchallenged and light hearted, photography and postcards conspire to hide the truth." says Lloyd. "These were and still are beautiful places. But driving past we would never know how afflicted and degraded these places have become. "

Lloyd balances a photographer's detachment with a passionate desire to present and confront his viewers.
